Safaree Samuels recently took to Instagram and was very candid about the struggles he faced financially while coming up in the entertainment industry.

Safaree posted old photos of himself, presumably from the time he spent performing with Nicki Minaj. The ‘Love and Hip Hop’ personality showed one photo that featured a chain he spoke about, saying, “I spent 130K on that chain.. It’s not to brag but I would never do anything like that again.”

The ‘LHH’ star then said “Then I went broke and sold it, I only got 50K for it back from the jeweler!! Lesson learned but we all fall down and get up.” Take a look above.
